Manchester Fashion Institute #FashionCommunity presents - Gallery Insiders: New Costume Acquisitions at Manchester Art Gallery.


This is a fantastic opportunity to find out about the new purchases of high fashion items that are being collected for the costume collection at Manchester Art Gallery and Platt Hall. Get exclusive insider info on upcoming exhibitions, which will feature these new pieces and learn how the collecting process works. Costume curator Dr Miles Lambert will talk you through newly acquired pieces and the thinking behind the selection that includes items by McQueen, Dior, and Galliano, as well as earlier pieces such as a Charles Worth dress. The talk will last 45 minutes and be followed by 15 minutes to ask questions or share your thoughts and observations.

This is a partnership project between Manchester Fashion Institute and Manchester Art Gallery supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund's Collecting Cultures project.

There are a limited number of spaces so make sure you register your FREE place on this trip now!
